So really, if you read the spoilers, plus all the infighting...what do you expect?

is makeb suspose to take place b4 or after black hole because there is a conversation option with marr and you say but we won" ilium and corellia." but from what I understand we lost corellia and black hole is just to make it worthless for the republic

wasn't Taris supposed to be a symbolic victory/Morale booster for the Republic?

The empire lost corellia, balmorra and ilum. That coupled with sith infighting and malgus's betrayal, the damage inflicted on DK have pushed the empire back.

Just FYI, The guy who wrote the Imperial Agent story wrote the Makeb Imperial storyline (though he is now freelance).

The Smuggler/JK wrtier has *always* held the title "lead writer" along with all the class writers, he isn't the only one still writing and it doesn't mean he's in total control of where the story will go and that he is Republic biased. But we all know the Empire loses, anyway, that's a given since we're playing in the past.

Also, regarding Darth Jadus

Ugh. I need to run a Bounty Hunter next and shoot that bureaucratic Chancellor scum---BAM!---right between the eyes. Then maybe I'll be in a better mood.
In the Imperial Army, it takes more courage to retreat than to advance.

Despite the knock-on effects it causes, it is supremely satisfying to behead the Supreme Chancellor. and the Sith don't stop kissing your arse afterwards.

Motivationman has it exactly. right now we're at the end of a new hope. the good guys have their first big victory things are looking up etc.

Makeb has set things in motion for the Empire to regain it's footing. Darth Marr is clearly a smarter, Malgus in that he's going to push through some reforms (he's just not gonna invite attack while doing so)

I imagine the next big expansion will be very much centered on the Empire resurgent.
